I dumped the only PAL from a Gunbird 2 PCB.Original device was a secured PALCE16V8H marked ‘PS5-1’ @U18.Dump has been successfully tested onto a GAL16V8 targeting device.

Today I dumped two PALs from a Big Fight and Ninja Emaki PCBs.In the first board, device was a secured PEEL18Cv8 located on daughterboard @IC56, I was able to fit equations in a GAL18V10 targeting device.In the latter board, device was a secured PAL14H4 @10F on CPU board which I successfully reversed onto a GAL16V8.Both boards had also other PLD devices but all set as registered so not dumpable.

Today we have new entries in our archive.

Coolmod sent dumps from a Crime City (Taito) PCB.Devices were all unsecured (three PAL16L8 and one PALCE16V8), I took care of converting dumps to GAL16V8 fuse maps and I successfully tested them on my board.

Team Europe sent 256KB binary dump (obtained with the Charles MacDonald 27C020 PLD adapter) of the PAL16L8 from a Fun World – MegaCard MC3 PCB.I reversed equations into a GAL16V8 fuse map which is untested for now since board is not working.Thanks to both for their contribution.

Lastly,  I successfully adapted into a GAL16V8 the bipolar PROM @7A – IC52 from a Vigilante (Irem M75 hardware) PCB , you can find .JED in the archive section.

Today we have some new PAL dumps.

Coolmod sent in dumps from a Taito Cameltry PCB, they were obtained from three unsecured PAL16L8, I took care of converting them to GAL16V8 fuse map and he successfully tested them back on board.He sent also a dump of an unsecured GAL22V10 found on the gun I/O board of an Invasion – The Abductors PCB  ( light gun rail shooter released by Midway in 1999), board was faulty so we assumed this dump as working.Thanks to him for the contribution.

I redumped the PLDs from a Vapor Trail PCB after testing the dumps we had and realized they didn’t work except one.Devices on my board were five secured GAL16V8 labeled by hand from ‘0’ to ‘4’.
